Transient is a project of 501Square and the Bronx River Parkway Reservation Conservancy. We operate under the supervision of the Westchester County Parks Department. We promote the eradication of invasive species like Asiatic Bittersweet, and Porcelain Berry. 

Our focus is the Bronx River Parkway Reservation, a 13.5 mile stretch of road, river, park and path that runs from the New York City line to the Kensico Dam.

The road is historic... the first parkway in America. The communities along its pat are iconic New York Suburbs: Bronxville, Tuckahoe, Crestwood, Scarsdale, Hartsdale and White Plains.

Past the Westchester County border the river runs all the way to Long Island Sound. It is the natural water source for The Bronx Zoo and the Botanical Gardens. and is a critical watershed for the New York City area.
